Re: Hooks and drilling holes

Sorry, I was wondering if the surface remains intact upon removal. Based on what you said, they appear ideal for lots of uses.

Re: Hooks and drilling holes


IF and I repeat IF you follow the instructions for installation and removal there is nothing left on the surface and no damage. If you don't follow instructions, you can mar the surface. I know all this because I didn't follow instructions at first. I went to Canadian Tire and got another hook and read the instructions and from then on it was a snap to install and remove. I've repositioned several because I didn't take enough care making sure they were square and level ( which the Old Bag pointed out ).
There is a tab on the adhesive strip ( hidden by the hook ). You pull that straight down, never toward you. The adhesive strip stretches to about 8 inches as it releases and then whacks you on the fingers. You might want to shield your fingers with your other hand. But, again, read the instructions and save them for later removal.

Was in Canadian Tire the other day and saw these over the door coat hooks on sale for about $2 each. Thought I would try them out on my bathroom doors.

We have always used versions of these for towels and other stuff. Lisa uses one on an out of the way cabinet door to hang a purse on. The paper towel version is great too, as it can then be located either inside the cabinet out of the way, or on the outside for good access.
